A Handmade Holiday Event


Handmade Idaho goes brick and mortar! Challenging years call for creative ideas. Handmade Idaho started by Boise resident Angela Stewart is typically planning their annual holiday event at El Korah Shrine which strives to bring opportunities for Idaho artists and makers to sell their products. However, 2020 brought new challenges for the organization and the event had to be cancelled due to safety concerns for large events. Understanding this but still wanting to create an opportunity for Idaho artists & makers to have a venue to sell their goods, Angela started brainstorming. She decided to take a leap of faith and rent an empty storefront at the Village in Meridian for the holidays. Handmade Idaho selected over 50 Idaho based artists, makers and artisan food producers to create a safe, all local boutique with gifts for everyone on your list. Handmade Idaho will also have an online market and offer curbside pickup. Another unique offering this year will be their curated gift boxes which can be shipped to anywhere, they can even personalize the card and send it directly to the recipient! You can find Handmade Idaho at 3693 E Longwing Lane #120, Meridian, ID 83642 (around the corner from the Yard House). The shop will be open 7 days a week starting Black Friday (November 27th) through December 28th, closed on Christmas Day. You will find many of your favorite local makers and some new ones from around Idaho including Banana Ink, Lit & Co, Wear Boise, Ladybug Press and more!
